Most of us don’t bite

Hello and welcome indeed. Most of us don’t bite. The most dangerous of us use explosives, not teeth, so we’re basically OK.

And as those TN threads already exists, they will be included even if the data is done before the weekend. (Hint: I’m not at my computer from late Friday. Data sooner rather than later please.)

1975s

Having had bad experiences with ’75s, especially Grahams, from a decade ago to almost twice that, I gave up on this vintage. In mixed lots I always value the 75s at zero: let me know if I’m wrong.
